Angry usb to serial converter - Configuration in RHEL 5 - Urgent


We are working in RHEL 5.0 version. We have only one serial port.
Our application needs 2 serial ports. We have a usb to serial converter.
Hence the usb has to be configured for 2nd serial port(/dev/ttyS1)

It would be great if someone gives the command line procedures to configure the usb port for serial communication.

Thanks in advance!!!!!!!!

Do not flag posts as urgent....this isn't urgent for anyone but you. Everyone here volunteers their time and knowledge to help others out, and your request isn't any more important than any other.

That said, if you plug in your USB-Serial converter, it'll probably be attached to /dev/usb0, or /dev/ttyUSB0. You can either configure your software to use that port, or make a symbolic link to the device, with "ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 /dev/ttyS1". Replace the ttyUSB0, with whatever your USB device comes up as.

Please read the rules about posting. Numerous others flag things as "urgent", and are told not to as well.
